Angled ceilings, above, add architectural interest to the boudoir, a haven of florals. “Go into a garden,” says the homeowner, “and see what nature does.” Opening that door has ushered in a breath of fresh air, renewing this sylvan sanctuary and the designer who calls it home.

  1. Ahhhh… nothing like a simple and proper English country cottage to make my heart race !!

    Of all the rooms pictured, my favourite is indeed the kitchen – with the Aga playing it’s important role as the center of all life’s activities! With the welcoming and comfortable chair by its side, the quaint kitchen exudes warmth and hospitality!

    I could move in today…..

    God bless !
